    I think the only surprise i saw was alexa losing especially since sasha was never scheduled to have this match. Everything else landed as expected.

    People were shocked Nakamura didnt win, but there was very little to zero build up between Nakamura and Jinder Mahal. There was plenty build up between Jinder and Cena, but nothing on Nakamura and JM.

    I dont know if Shinsuke stays in WWE much longer anyways, there has been rumors that he wants to go to njpw same with finn balor.

    Balor should move to Smackdown, and Corbin is finished.

    Corbin and Rusev have reached a dead end... at one point Rusev was one of the better heals, he honestly reminded me of Scott Steiner. Not just because they share the same finisher but the reaction they would draw from the crowd. Rusev really knows how to get under their skin.

    The RAW tag team division is confusing to me. I think the titles need to be defended more often and I don't mean defending it only on PPV's. Titles like the RAW tag team should be defended more in RAW, and perhaps even a title change in a future RAW event. Same goes for the IC title IMO. In Smackdown we see title defenses more frequently.

    Plenty of good stuff for Summerslam, but the card was, once again, way too long. That Orton/Rusev match didn't need to happen, nor did the Cena/Corbin one, or the Enzo/Cass saga. You clip those out, and you have a good card, top to bottom.

    And how do you not book The Hardys to do SOMETHING during the PPV?

    Yeah the Hardys are definitely going indy after their deal expires... sad but the people writing the show only focuses on the same 2-3 teams/wrestlers and they battle it out for months...

    I get the feeling Brock Lesnar was given a tip about Jon Jones' steroid use which is why he has yet to file for reinstatement. He is close with DC so DC's camp may have told him to wait out for the announcement before you change your WWE plans.

    How do you figure that?

    (yes, I am aware of what is happening at NXT)

    But she is out of action for quite some time with her injury. I can't imagine she shows up on RAW this week.

    I didnt hear about her injury until a little after i posted that. Regardless i dont think she goes back to NXT, theyre going to want to build up the Asuka vs Alexa rivalry soon.

    Finally listened to E&C's Daniel Bryan interview from last week. Sounds like he'll be back in the ring. Their Kenny Omega interview from today was pretty good as well.

    At this point though i dont even know who you give the world heavyweight title to when i think about it lol smackdown is lacking stars...

    I guess it would have to be between Bobby Roode and Aj Styles..

    Each time Kane returns like he did tonight, he gets a record breaking pop and its always awesome. I still remember years ago when he returned, Paul Bearer came out first and everyone went insane and then kane’s music went on.

    Other than the need to change Zayn's music, I am really enjoying the Owens / Zayn show thus far.

    Kay that main event was awesome. Everyone had their moments to shine, i like that Kane was not used as a punching bag like they have the last 3-4 years, they used him as the big red machine and he was dominant throughout the match. Kurt obviously stole the show, and deservingly so.

    What happened to this thread? I used to come and always get my WWE fix from here (I appreciate ya Vertical)... but I caught the clip of Stone Cold stunnering Vince...that’s one of the few things in life that will never get old and I will always take pleasure in watching.... so nostalgic.

    Enzo amore has been fired, whether the allegations are true or not i say good riddance. I hope the girl is able to heal, but allegations aside enzo is someone i turn the tv off to.

    Perhaps its time for WWE to explore lucha underground for cruiserweight talent.

    Enjoyed royal rumble minus the ronda rousey debut. Feels like she is desperate for another shot at hollywood and she definitely cant hang with the top women wrestlers.

    They will def out wrestle her as far as in ring wrestling goes but we all know Rousey would dust em all in a real street fight aside from maybe Nia Jax considering most wrestlers are just glorified acrobats/stuntmen... I do agree that the other women in the division should still come first, they been working at their craft for a long time and the division has made serious strides the last few years and has come a looong way... they shouldn’t ruin it with a Rousey Super Push....

    Well rumors are theyre pushing a Triple H / Stephanie McMahon vs Rousey / partnerhere for wrestlemania.

    Id be annoyed if she were to face Charlotte for the belt... i can name 29 women wrestlers that can put on a better show with charlotte, and they all participated in the rumble. I left out 1 because i think she can do better than Vickie Guerrero, but thats about it.

    The girl they need to push is Kairi. Those elbow drops were beautiful

    That’s funny, because I remember specifically saying how fantastic that one elbow drop was from her last night. And I agree, I rather see the other more deserving (all of them) Women over Rousey for anything important when it comes to Wrestlemania. Rousey got no reaction from the crowd last night and that’s telling lol

    And I bet it’s the Rock she’s matched up with... that’s the only way they can make the match cornier and Rousey and Rock have some wierd “team” thing as they had that Wrestlemania moment a few years ago. However, that’s my pure speculation if they were to do the match you mentioned.

    It isn't about who is more deserving in the women's division or who's the better wrestler. It's all about who will bring in more money and more eyeballs. In the last 24 hours Rousey has given the WWE more mainstream exposure than any single wrestler since possibly Benoit in 2007 and before that the Steve Austin/Tyson RAW epsiode. Her signing is a huge huge deal. She's the biggest female name that the WWE has ever had and is going to be pushed to the moon.

    She hasn't even stepped into a WWE ring to wrestle so saying that there are 29 other women who could put on a better match than her is just silly. We don't know what she can do and even if she's not the best wrestler in the world as long as she's bringing in money that's all the WWE cares about. Workrate is nice to have but if you don't put butts in the seats it doesn't matter.

    Cena got bood out of philly last night. It has been a brutal couple weeks for him and the fans. Theyve grown tired of him.

    I fully expected him to beat Finn but the philly fans took it as just another day of cena burying someone.

    Lets face it, Finn has nothing to work with with the type of guys Vince wants to put in the elimination chamber main event. Vince is obsessed with 300+ lb men main eventing together and that is exactly what hes going to put together in the chamber.
